australian-bridal-fashion-week Australian Bridal Fashion Week (ABFW) is the first event of its kind for the Australian wedding market. Launched in 2015 by Weddings and Events of Australia (WEOA), the support body for elite businesses in the Australian wedding market, the inaugural ABFW finally gave Australian bridal couture designers a forum to showcase their new collections to brides and bridal gown retailers.

In June 2016, Australian Bridal Fashion Week is coming back, bigger and better than ever before and When Freddie met Lilly are making their debut on the runway!

When Freddie met Lilly’s new collection, Indianna, will be launched at Australian Bridal Fashion Week. The 24 piece collection featured stunning European laces and silks in romantic silhouettes that show off a woman’s beauty and elegance.

So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly !?
Our wedding was perfect. Everything ran smoothly and honestly, I had no stress leading up to the wedding and especially not on the day. I enjoyed the whole process and actually miss planning a wedding now that it’s over! We booked our venue 12 months before we got married so that was the perfect planning time for me.

A growing trend for modern weddings is to incorporate personality, tradition and vintage style together to create a special celebration that will be remembered for years to come.

While there are many aspects to planning a wedding, and dozens of details to take care of, most people would agree that a wedding gown is one of the most important and should be chosen with care. Your wedding gown is not something to be chosen lightly.

So please tell us – with months (or even years!) of planning, did the Big Day run smoothly!?

In all honesty, there were a few hiccups in the morning before the ceremony from the groom losing track of time whilst eating lunch out with his groomsmen (lucky him!) to the car driver getting horrendously lost and making an illegal u-turn on the highway, cutting somebody off. These events are comical now, looking back, and in fact just increased the level of comfort that I felt when I saw my handsome groom standing at the end of the isle after I survived the car ride in. The rest of the day ran smoothly and was so relaxing!

Whether you and your fiancé have chosen a simple affair, or a more elaborate gathering , your wedding dress is the star of the show. All eyes will be on you, so it’s important that you choose a dress that suits your personality, taste and style.

If you’ve decided to go the more traditional route with your ceremony and reception, you may want to think about a high neckline wedding dress; these are also the perfect choice for getting married in the cooler months.

new vs. used wedding dress wfml brisbaneGenerally, brides fall into two categories when it comes to buying a wedding dress: “It’s a once in a lifetime event and money is no object,” or, “I’m going to pay how much for a wedding gown that I will wear only once?”

If you’re in the latter category, you may be considering buying a used wedding dress. While this could be a more practical choice to those on a budget, it’s important to not let money get in the way of making the right decision. Consider the following before purchasing a used dress. Here are some things to consider before buying a used gown.

With more couples choosing to celebrate in unique ways, a vintage meets modern wedding is the perfect way to show off your unique style and tastes. Today, your wedding can be as individualized as you are; there are no rules, and traditional ceremonies have given way to more modern and distinctive celebrations.

What is a vintage meets modern wedding?

As the name suggests, this type of wedding marries vintage with modern styles. Whether you choose a 1940’s homespun look or prefer a 1930’s Gatsby style luxury wedding, this theme will always be in style.

simple wedding dress when freddie met lilly annie gownYou want your wedding day to be perfect, and you’ve planned everything down to the very last detail, from the caterer to the limousine driver. Now it’s time to choose your wedding dress with the same kind of care. This is not a decision to be made lightly. The first thing you must decide is whether to go for a simple wedding dress or an elaborate, more intricately detailed style.

There is no right or wrong choice here; after all, it’s your wedding, you’re the bride, and you have the final say. There are benefits to both styles, of course, and what you choose will depend on your own personal tastes and budget.

Finding the wedding dress of your dreams is an essential part of making sure your day will be both perfect and memorable.

1. Determine your budget: You can’t start shopping until you know what you can afford. There is no sense looking for and finding the perfect dress, and then realizing you can’t purchase it! Not only is that a waste of time, but it’s also a recipe for disappointment.

2. Be flexible: While it’s a good idea to have an idea of the type of dress you want, it’s important to be flexible to your options. Try on a variety of different styles. You can’t judge how it will look on you until you model it. We at When Freddie met Lilly can help you select a few different dress varieties that will suit your body type and tastes.
